A-Bones
Saturday, June 19th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Don't miss the frantic rock n roll stylings of the A-Bones as they invade the WFMU studios performing selections from their latest long player "Not Now!" on Norton Records, (a Cherry Blossom Clinic Top Ten album of 2009) plus an array of their smash hits and surprises. Join the A-Bones on their Rocks Off Booze Cruise around Manhattan, Wed June 23rd, 7- 11PM on the Half Moon at Skyport Marina - 23rd and the FDR NYC.


Diamondsnake
Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, 9pm - Midnight
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

EFD kicks off his new time on the WFMU summer schedule with a bang - a headbang, that is. Diamondsnake began just a few short months ago, when Phil Costello (Satanicide, Valley Lodge) and Moby (Moby) began collaborating on some earworm-inducing glam-metal anthems. Their skull-crushing vision was fully realized with the addition of Tomato (Sound of Urchin) on attack drums, and Dave Hill (Valley Lodge, Walter Schreifels Band, funny person) who plays either bass or guitar, depending on what Moby feels like doing. (Dave mostly plays bass. Just sayin'.) The band has their first-ever gig on Thursday June 17 at the Highline Ballroom in NYC, but tune in the night before, Wednesday the 16th, to hear their world radio debut right here on WFMU! Even if you think you're not a fan of pop-metal you'll want to catch this set -- it's all the hooks and humor, with none of the hair. Don't miss it!


Sage Francis
Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, 8pm - 9pm
on
Nardwuar The Human Serviette Show
An interview with Providence, RI rapper Sage Francis! (Note: *new time* for the Nardwuar Show!) Doot doola doot doo... doot doo!


The Black Swans
Wednesday, June 16th, 2010, 6am - 9am
on
The John Allen Show
The Black Swans are a contemporary chicken eyed soul unit fronted by burgeoning storyteller Jerry DeCicca. Addressing role play, the anxieties of bed death, and loss and renewal, their odes reveal some high concept salvaging from Sid Selvedge to Sam Cooke to old gothic lady poets. They live in Columbus, Ohio. They have a new record Words Are Stupid on St. Ides/Secretly Canadian and now seems like a great time to play back this set they recorded for John Allen last year.


Jim Behrle
Tuesday, June 15th, 2010, 6pm - 7pm
on
Sportsy Talk with Bronwyn C.& Jim
This Tuesday, on the First Ever "Thunk Tank with Bronwyn and Jay" show, the Brainiacs welcome very special guest Jim Behrle. Although he's a well-known poet and former host of his own radio show on Boston's WBUR, Behrle is most infamous as the creator of "Kreepie Kats," the horrifying weekly comic strip that appeared on Gawker until the Authorities realized it was there. He's also a rabid sports fan, and will be joining Bronwyn and Jay for some Sportsy Talk this Tuesday at 6:00 PM on WFMU.


Mount Carmel
Tuesday, June 15th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Mount Carmel are the Columbus, Ohio trio of Matthew Reed, Patrick Reed, and Kevin Shubak, serving up total blues-bleed of Groundhogs and Peter Green worship with zero ironic pretentions and throttling rock power (almost outboogying Endless Boogie at the Charleston in Brooklyn the other night as well!). Stopping by on the way out of Philly for Brian's show today for an afternoon slide into an evening at the Lakeside Lounge on Avenue B and 10th Street (early!) Simple, pure, rawk salvation at hand.


Puttin' on the Ritz
Monday, June 14th, 2010, Midnight - 3am
on
Miniature Minotaurs with Kurt Gottschalk
Putttin' on the Ritz began as a duo of TV producer, comedian and author BJ Rubin and drummer Kevin Shea (of such bands as Talibam!, Mostly Other People Do the Killing and People). They've swollen their ranks to include horns and keyboards, and have taken on the entirety of the Velvet Underground's "White Light / White Heat." They will perform their version of the album in the final hours before the minotaur retreats into its cave. June 14, 12-3 am.


Tinariwen Recorded Live at the Bell House
Saturday, June 12th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
A captivating two hour set by the fabulous hypnotic, bluesy, electric Sahara Desert Tuareg guitar band Tinariwen recorded by our illustrious technical guru Irene Trudel live at the Bell House in Gowanus, Brooklyn on February 19, 2010. (Irene also recorded the opening band Fool's Gold; their set will be aired later this summer.) Tinariwen will be on the road again in North America this summer, including a big show on Saturday afternoon June 26 at Central Park Summerstage on an amazing bill with Syria's Omar Souleyman and American Africa-philes Toubab Krewe - plus a return engagement at the comparatively more intimate Bell House on Sunday night June 27.


Superchunk
Saturday, June 12th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Tune into the Cherry Blossom Clinic to hear an amazing live session from the one and only Superchunk! The legendary kings of indie rock are back and ready to reclaim their crown with the release of "Majesty Shredding" on Merge Records, their first new album in nine years. The new album is a guitar-heavy return to the glory days of mid-90s Superchunk, and this live session - which was recorded during the Primavera Sound festival during WFMU's two-day remote back in May (but was unaired until now!) serves as an amazing preview. The album doesn't drop til September 14, so get your fix this Saturday on the Cherry Blossom Clinic!


4th Annual Graffiti Special
Friday, June 11th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
WFMU's 4th Annual Graffiti Special will feature such artists as SNOW from New Jersey's FX crew, Meres-One of the TD4 crew & overseer of the unique 5 Pointz outdoor graffiti gallery in Long Island City, and Demerock of both the Wallnuts and Vicious Styles crews who recently, in association with Gentrified, produced the "Jersey Burns" DVD. Other guests will include graffiti photo-journalists Jim & Karla Murray (whose books Burning New York and Broken Windows comprehensively & colorfully documented a full decade of NYC graffiti history) and Florian Gaag - director of the Polish graffiti themed feature film "Wholetrain." Popaganda artist Ron English and Weird NJ contributer Wheeler Antabanez will stop by the show that will also feature a forgotten 1992 interview with legendary slain Bay Area graffiti artist Mike "DREAM" Francisco.


Watain's E
Thursday, June 10th, 2010, 11pm - 2am
on Diane's Kamikaze Fun Machine

Diane recently spoke with vocalist "E" from Swedish black metal band WATAIN. She'll be airing bits of the interview, which suffered unfortunate audio glitches in it, and airing tracks from their brand new record "Lawless Darkness". The full interview will be posted on WFMU's Beware of the Blog on Monday June 14th.


Opponents
Wednesday, June 9th, 2010, 8pm - 11pm
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

OPPONENTS are, quite simply, one of a small handful of bands creating at the very forefront of contemporary electronics, making music that can't be easily defined (or dismissed) as "noise," "psychedelia" or "PE." It's all mushing together in gloriously appreciable ways, and OPPONENTS are a project currently operating at peak power. Their CDr on Obsolete Units, I Swarm With a Thousand Bees, is a killer-diller of analog whips, waves and pulsations, and heaven forbid, there's actually a melodic, or perhaps tonal, base to it all as well; beats too. OPPONENTS are early Kluster/Cluster through a grimy, Brooklyn-bloc filter. And as compelling as the new CD is, OPPONENTS' as-yet-unreleased jams continue to explore new territory that layers scary, modern, spiky punch atop Berlin-school throbs and mid-80s-style industrial maneuvers.


Sabbath Assembly
Wednesday, June 9th, 2010, 6am - 9am
on
The John Allen Show
"Restored to One" is a modern response to the musical activities of a cult known as The Process Church of the Final Judgment, who used music to spread their visions of Gnostic reconciliation in a time of cataclysmic change. Sabbath Assembly has re-charged the original hymns of The Process Church and worked them into moving renditions that unite the trinity of rock, psychedelic and gospel into one triumphant re-awakening. Sabbath Assembly features Jex Thoth (Jex Thoth) and Dave Nuss (NNCK). We'll hear some live tracks they recorded at FMU earlier this year, and Nuss and Thoth will discuss the project and preview songs from the record out later this month.


Experimental Cassette Culture Archaeology with Dais Records' Ryan Martin
Tuesday, June 8th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on Brian Turner's show

Brian is joined today by Ryan Martin of Dais Records/York Factory Complaint to dig out dusty boxes of found tapes old and new, discussing cassette culture starting in the late '70s post-industrial / synth realm and going through the '80s and '90s up until the deluged tape scene today. Playing avant Fluxus cassettes, artist recordings, tape manipulations, unheard dialogue, drone noise and warped field recordings. Things are going to get weird.


The Dexateens
Tuesday, June 8th, 2010, Noon - 3pm
on Three Chord Monte with Joe Belock

The southern rock MC5. Scorching three-guitar attack out of Birmingham, Alabama.

on

Live in the studio, an intimate duo version of San Francisco's Judeo / global / avant ensemble Charming Hostess, with founder / head hostess Jewlia Eisenberg accompanied by multi-instrumentalist Jason Ditzian. The duo introduce us to Jewlia's ambitious and passionate Charming Hostess Bowls Project - based on 1500 year old Judeo-Iraqi texts discovered on ancient Babylonian bowl amulets. Charming Hostess performs this repertoire at regular gigs but Jewlia is also currently raising funds to support the first gallery installation of the Bowls Project, at the Yerba Buena Arts Center in San Francisco from July 5 to August 22, 2010.

Jason Bitner, Dave Tompkins, & Felix Visser Put The Needle On The 1980s Record
Friday, June 4th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
For this episode of Put The Needle On The Record, Billy Jam will take it back to the 1980's (and beyond) when his guests will include musical instrument maker Felix Visser, and authors Dave Tompkins and Jason Bitner. Bitner, co-founder of Found magazine and the editor of last year's popular anthology of nostalgic stories about mix tapes "Cassette From My Ex: Stories and Soundtracks of Lost Loves," recently launched a wonderfully engaging website (and possible future book) titled "How I Met Your Motherboard: Tales of Early Computing" that complies firsthand stories centered around such 1980's computers as Commodore 64s and Apple IIs. Meanwhile Dave Tompkins, author of the recently published, exhaustively researched "How To Wreck A Nice Beach: The Vocoder From World War II to Hip-Hop, the Machine Speaks," will talk on the topic of vocoders - an instrument that, while around for some decades, really came into its own in the 1980's. And phoning in from the Netherlands will be Felix Visser, the founder & president of the Dutch company Synton that in the 70's and 80's manufactured the Syntovox vocoders; a type of vocodor favored by Wendy Carlos among other musicians.


Janette Beckman & Sara Rosen (Noah fills in for Jason)
Tuesday, June 1st, 2010, 9am - Noon
on
Coffee Break For Heroes & Villains with Noah
Janette Beckman got her start photographing some of the most well-known names in Punk Rock during the 1970s: The Ramones, The Clash, The Specials, The Jam, The Sex Pistols, etc. Moving to NY in 1982, she immediately became drawn to the upcoming hip-hop scene and captured city icons such as Afrika Bambaataa, Run DMC, Michael Jonzun, Big Daddy Kane, Slick Rick, MC Lyte and on and on and on!

Sara Rosen has been one of the most instrumental figures in publishing as far as getting graffiti artists and hip hop photographers' names out there. She was the Associate Publisher and Senior Vice President of PowerHouse Books. She has created books, exhibitions, and special events that have sparked and influenced trends with various projects. Tune in to hear all about capturing that solid image and listen as Janette & Sara pick out their favorite 12" sides.

G Lucas Crane vs. Nonhorse
Wednesday, May 26th, 2010, 8pm - 11pm
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

G Lucas Crane's music sounds like a title bout. Like people pushing pianos at one another from opposite ends of the room, like WWII radio-pilot conversations interfering with a stack of crud-covered disco LPs. It's one man versus two cassette players, a mixer, a converted set of headphones, and a few pedals hit as often with elbows as with hands -- G Lucas Crane is no ordinary man. Nonhorse, Lucas' "adversarial image totem" is on the table, though, has excellent stats this season, and knows how to psych out his opponent -- a fierce competitor. Beauty, terror and ultimately release in a clutter of gorgeous chaos. In a bold publicity maneuver, Nonhorse has also released recordings on Baked Tapes, Abandon Ship Records and Obsolete Units.


Nardwuar vs. Feist and The Mars Volta!

The new book Big Hair and Plastic Grass: A Funky Ride Through Baseball and America in the Swinging '70s tells the story of what happened when freewheeling 1970s pop culture crashed into the insular world of Major League Baseball. Author Dan Epstein (20th Century Pop Culture) will be live in the studio to regale us with stories about the decade that was like no other either on or off the field. Note: no disco records will be burned during this event. As a matter of fact, they'll be played on the air! And be sure to come out to the Release Party at The Bell House in Brooklyn the next night (Wednesday May 26).

Everybody Was In The French Resistance... Now!
Tuesday, May 18th, 2010, 11pm - 2am
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

This band was formed by Eddie Argos of Art Brut and Dyan Valdes of The Blood Arm to "correct the mistakes of pop songs past." As such, their new album is called Fixing The Charts (Cooking Vinyl), and includes such responses to past chart-toppers as "G.I.R.L.F.R.E.N. (You Know I've Got A)," "Hey! It's Jimmy Mack," and the song that fittingly tells the story of the band's origin, "Creeque Allies" (pronounced like the WWII alliance, not like the plural of "Alley"). The songs are just clever enough without being cloying, and will be enjoyed by fans of Art Brut, Soft Cell and pop music aficionados at large. Catch Everybody Was In The French Resistance... Now! live at Mercury Lounge on Wednesday May 12, and at Union Hall on Thursday the 13th as part of their US tour!


Arrington de Dionyso's Malaikat Dan Singa
Tuesday, May 18th, 2010, 9am - Noon
on Talk's Cheap with Jason Sigal

You may know Arrington de Dionyso from his post-punk-freak-folk group Old Time Relijun, or from his trance-inducing solo experimentations with overtone-singing, shruti-box, jaw harp, and Kadri Gopalnath-inspired bass clarinet. He also teaches workshops on "Unleashing the Voice", and plays in ESP-Disk's free-jazz quartet The Naked Future. His paintings offer a visual depiction of said future, where humans, animals, and angels live in naked, bestial harmony. Malaikat Dan Singha (K Records, 2009) is an album that melds all of these influences and more: Arrington's unleashed vocals are sung entirely in Indonesian, and may contain translations of William Blake and the Zohar. Arrington de Dionyso brings Malaikat Dan Singa on the road with a full band -- tour dates here. Tune in as they perform their visions of the future live on WFMU May 18th. Oh, and watch this video

on Gaylord Fields's show

Get ready to receive a good shellackin' of the musical kind when Phast Phreddie the Boogaloo Omnibus and members of his Big Ten Inch Collective prove to a man that size most certainly does matter when it comes to gramophone records. In anticipation of their 78s-only DJ show at Brooklyn's Bell House on May 23, expect to hear jump blues, doo-wop, hillbilly, novelty, rock 'n' roll, R&B, blues, be-bop, swing and who knows what else, as long as it's pressed on a 10-inch. The revolutions -- except for those that turn at 78 per minute -- will not be radiocast.


Bassekou Kouyate & Amy Sacko + Burkina Electric
Saturday, May 15th, 2010, 6pm - 9pm
on
Transpacific Sound Paradise with Rob Weisberg
This is going to be an amazing summer for world music and especially African music in NYC. Tonight we get an early taste from two very innovative bands that will be making the summer scene:

First, an intimate visit with Bassekou Kouyate & Amy Sacko, husband and wife leaders of Bassekou Kouyate & Ngoni Ba. Kouyate took a traditional West African lute, known within his native in Mali as the ngoni, plugged it in, and made it the centerpiece of his band (which features several of them) and indeed a brand new musical genre.

Then, a full set from the equally visionary Burkina Electric, a truly unique African electric / avant garde hybrid: Charismatic singer Mai Lingani and guitarist Wende K. Blass from Burkina Faso team up with African-inspired Austrian avant garde percussionist / composer Lukas Ligeti and the Neu Deutche Welle (80s German "new wave") electro-avant-pop mastermind, Pyrolator (member of recently revived Fehlfarben, veteran of Der Plan and DAF and founder / director of the seminal label AtaTak).

Burkina Electric will share a Central Park Summerstage bill with Bassekou Kouyate and Ngoni Ba on Sunday afternoon July 25 (along w/ Fool's Gold), plus they'll be playing the Bang on a Can Marathon at the World Financial Center Winter Garden Sunday June 27. And scoring a rare summer trifecta they'll also hit Celebrate Brooklyn in Prospect Park on Thursday evening July 8, providing live accompaniment to Karole Armitage's African-inspired dance piece Itutu.


Solomon Burke & Richie Ramone
Saturday, May 15th, 2010, 11am - 1pm
on

Michael chats with the King of Rock 'N' Soul, Solomon Burke, who returns to the show to discuss his almost 50 years in show business and his new Willie Mitchell-produced album "Nothing's Impossible."  Michael also welcomes former Ramones drummer Richie Ramone who played with the band from 1982-87 & wrote the hit song "Somebody Put Something in My Drink," and quit the band when they refused to share proceeds from lucrative T-Shirt sales.


Steinski & Monica Lynch
Friday, May 14th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Pioneering cut-and-paste, hip-hop recording artist & regular WFMU contributor Steinski, who in the early '80s along with Double Dee crafted the highly influential, sample-based, sound collage "Lessons" series, revisits the WFMU studios after returning to the States fresh from from his latest European tour for an interview and live studio set. Also in the studio will be WFMU DJ and former President of Tommy Boy Records Monica Lynch to talk about the history of one of hip-hop's most important record labels.


T.O.M.B.
Wednesday, May 12th, 2010, 8pm - 11pm
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

Self-described by one of their members as "noise strictly under the evolution and domain of metal," and that is indeed apt. Sonically, though, T.O.M.B. have a world of mystery within their sound that reaches into exceptionally dark realms, more so than many artists that could be described as "noise" or "black metal." Most often, T.O.M.B. sound like restless, angry spirits, wringing out eternity and screaming and scraping at the walls. Insistent percussion, provided by a contact-mic'd gravestone, is accompanied by frightening, distant synthesizer moans and dissonant tones, eerie rumbling, and the screams of the dead. Moments of the afterlife landscape are viewed in haunted contemplation. T.O.M.B. are the stuff of waking nightmares, and their Castle set is much anticipated.

Valley Lodge
Tuesday, May 11th, 2010, 11pm - 2am
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Power popsters extraordinaire Valley Lodge have the distinction of being the first EFD booking to come about as a direct result of Twitter! Sadly, details of the exchange are lost -- at least until the Library Of Congress gets that archive up and running. The band includes current and former members of Cobra Verde, Satanicide, Walt Mink, Sensefield, 2 Skinnee J's, Uptown Sinclair, and Tragedy (the world's greatest all-metal tribute to the Bee Gees). Their hooktastic songs are guaranteed to make fans of The Raspberries, New Pornographers and Cheap Trick stop what they're doing and turn up the volume. Their most recent album is Semester At Sea (Explosive). Don't miss this!

Live Remote from San Francisco Gallery 16's "100 Records"
Friday, May 7th, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on
Put The Needle On The Record with Billy Jam
Musician/ artist/ curator Sonny Smith (of Sonny & The Sunsets who performed on WFMU during SXSW) currently has a unique exhibit at San Francisco's Gallery 16. Entitled "100 Records" it features the cover art for one hundred seven inch records by 100 bands/artists that never existed. Actually the band names & song titles (200 in all for Side A & B) were all dreamt up by Smith who then commissioned a hundred artists to create corresponding cover art for these fictional bands' singles. Smith then, with other musicians, set about making the music to go along with these imaginary 45s. He then built a jukebox (also on the display in the gallery) to playback these songs. This coming Friday WFMU will set up its remote broadcast unit smack in the middle of the "100 Records" exhibit when Smith will be among the many guests on the air. Also scheduled to stop by are Gallery 16's Griff Williams, Live Human, DnZ, Z-Man, B-Cause, and more to be announced. Gallery 16 is located at the corner of Bryant & Third Streets in downtown San Francisco and is open to the public. This WFMU broadcast of "Put The Needle On The Record" with Billy Jam happens at local San Francisco time noon to 3pm, which is 3pm to 6pm Jersey City time, on Friday May 7th.

White Hills
Tuesday, May 4th, 2010, 11pm - 2am
on The Evan "Funk" Davies Show

Brooklyn's White Hills is frequently tagged as "space rock," and that's a fair enough starting point. But the band then layers in enough interesting elements - most notably a killer raw rock guitar sound that one reviewer non-ironically calls "Stoogewind" - so that non-heads (such as, ahem, your host) remain enthralled during even the longest jams. We figured three years was enough time for everyone's eardrums to recover from their previous appearance, so we're excited to welcome White Hills back to WFMU. They have a new self-titled release out now on Thrill Jockey.

Comparisons bandied about have included Naked on the Vague, early PiL, Malaria and Xmal Deutschland, and you can hear 'em live today, or check out Brooklyn upcoming gigs at Death By Audio (May 6th) or Glasslands (May 25th).

Saturday, May 1st, 2010, 3pm - 6pm
on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T

Terre T is honored to welcome Cleveland legends The Styrenes to the Cherry Blossom Clinic on Saturday May 1st from 3-6 PM. It's not hyperbole to call the Styrenes - whose members have also been in the equally legendary Electric Eels and the Mirrors - one of the greatest bands in rock history. Rolling Stone called the Styrenes 'post-punk before punk ever happened,' but that only scratches the surface of their genius and influence. They'll be playing at Death By Audio in Brooklyn on April 30th and Manhattan's Cake Shop on May 1st, but tune into the Cherry Blossom Clinic to hear them lay it down live on WFMU!

Pre-Walpurgisnacht psychic bonfire starring Hex Breaker Quintet
Wednesday, April 28th, 2010, 8pm - 11pm
on Wm. Berger presents My Castle of Quiet

All are welcome, to hear what happens when two of the most compelling electronic, sound-shaper crews alive today combine to make music magic. It's Telecult Powers + Grasshopper + some creepy dude with a nice smile and leath'ry wings. What to expect? How about a Venn Diagram of current drone and abstract electronic music--the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse with Grasshopper and Telecult together, but with surprisingly pulled-back reins...much more of a haunting and reflective sound compared to Ghops nightmare blasts and Telecult's omega pulsations. The Hex Breaker Quintet is awesome and will defy volcanic forces to bring you the earth's center-hottest jams. And though it's two nights early, witches, demons, lovers and lycanthropes are welcome, nay encouraged, to strip naked and dance and fornicate in the moonlight.

Formed in 1970 Sparks has churned out an amazing catalogue of glam, power-pop, chamber music, and collaborated with Giorgio Moroder and certainly found themselves on the ground floor of the electronic music movement. But the Mael Brothers, Russell and Ron, have never easily been pigeonholed, which accounts for their massive influence in a variety of spheres with one of the most hardcore fanbases of any popular music act. Russell Mael talks to John Allen about the latest Sparks album, "The Seduction of Ingmar Bergman" on his show, Wednesday April 28th from 6-9AM!

From the Italian countryside, Jooklo Duo brings their brand of ecstatic free jazz to WFMU.  Inspired by the back catalogs of ESP-Disk' and BYG/Actuel, Virginia Genta (tenor sax) & David Ranzan (drums) play a constantly searching raw and impassioned improvisation that recalls the likes of Arthur Doyle, Don Cherry, and Rashied Ali's duo with Frank Lowe as much as Taj Mahal Travellers. Jooklo Duo's April US tour includes several shows in the northeast as well as a west coast leg, go see them if you have the chance!  Also, check out their many collaborations and records on Qbico and their own Troglosound label.

Twain often publicly claimed a distaste for the piano, yet privately had a particular affection for it and was involved with the instrument and its players his entire life. The CD features performances by Davis of nine piano works connected to Twain, interspersed with readings of Twain's sardonic observations about the instrument.
